Our Tutoring Workshops:
The Heart of the MagiKats Programme
Cascade Magikats Workshops run Sun, Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs afternoons from 3:00 - 6:00 and Sat mornings from 9:30 - 12:30 in our centre in JLT, Dubai.
Our workshops are fun, friendly and supportive. Although the work is designed to be challenging, the support received from their own mentor ensures that no student is allowed to struggle.
Workshops last for 45 minutes and students attend once per week, working as part of a small group (no more than six). Every student benefits from interaction with their peers, through discussion, hands-on activities and partner working.
Supporting the school curriculum:
Magikats is a British based programme and is linked to the English/Wales curriculum taught in British curriculum schools in Dubai. Students who are studying in schools based in IB and other curriculum's also benefit from the programme due to its focus on the progression of core skills in Maths and English similar in each curriculum.
Small group collaboration:
A maximum of six students work with a MagiKats mentor. Members of each tuition group are selected so they will work well together and can work collaboratively where appropriate. Every student can still receive one-to-one support when it is needed, but the positive and relaxed atmosphere created by this approach brings out the best in every student.
All Cascade MagiKats mentors are qualified and experienced elementary school teachers.
A multi-sensory approach:
In addition to the written work and tuition provided to each student, our unique resources provide a multi-sensory approach to learning, providing a different way in which each student can learn.
Traditional learning techniques:
Rather than relying on technology to provide interest, our approach uses investigative learning techniques, combined with our multi-sensory approach, to develop strong subject knowledge. Students also develop their study skills, thinking skills and problem solving skills - making the benefits of attending a MagiKats workshop extend beyond the subject(s) they are studying.
No matter whether a student is average, excels, struggles or has learning difficulties, all MagiKats students are encouraged to extend their learning at every MagiKats workshop they attend. Our individual approach means that no child is either held back or pushed forward - they work at their own pace and with their own goals.
